ROUND BABY BLANKET
Material: Sport weight yarn that will knit up at approximately 7 sts and 10 rows per inch.

Cast on 140 sts. using contrast waste yarn. Knit several rows; then knit 1 row with a ravel cord from right to left.

On the left side put into HP 137 needles and knit 2 rows over the 3 needles that are left in working position. After row 3, then on every other row, bring 3 needles back into working position 11 times (36 N in WP). Now bring 2 needles back into working position EOR 52 times, ending with the carriage on the left.*
Repeat from * to * 9 more times (total 10 sections); then remove on scrap yarn.
Kitchener stitch the last row of main yarn to the first row, and remove waste yarn. With a tapestry needle and main yarn, do a running stitch around the center hole and draw it closed. Pin into a circle and block. Crochet around the edge or use the worm edging.
